Kat Martin is one of our longtime favorite authors. For us, she ranks up there with Catherine Coulter, Sandra Brown, and Iris Johansen for always providing great suspense with just the right amount of romance thrown in for good measure. If you haven’t given her Maximum Security series a try, you’re missing out. These stories always thrill and keep you glued to every page, until you discover that you very likely consumed the book in one sitting. To tease your literary taste buds, we are excited to offer you this glimpse into the newest chapters of Martin’s ongoing saga. Enjoy! —J&H

We have always loved Gothic romantic suspense stories, and it sure seems like we’re not alone. J.T. Ellison’s forthcoming novel, Her Dark Lies, has all our favorite elements in one book: a luscious setting, a luxurious home, a fabulous wedding, and a mysterious first wife. Perhaps J.T. has taken a page from Daphne du Maurier for this one? Regardless where her inspiration came from, this sounds like one dandy of a book and we can’t wait to read it. We hope you enjoy this exclusive excerpt! —J&H

We’ve always loved island life. There’s just something about the simplicity of it that beckons to us and appeals to our nature. Perhaps it’s the scent of the sea, the waves on our toes, or the closeness of a small community where everyone knows everybody else. Few people capture this as well as Susan Mallery does in her Blackberry Island books, and it is always a joy when we get to visit her picturesque community one more time. In her latest volume in the series, she introduces us to three girls who really love one another and help each other over some seemingly insurmountable hurdles. We hope you enjoy this sneak peek into Sisters By Choice.J&H Read more of this post
